    And actual science doesn't fit into sound bites. We could do a better job at developing researchers' communication skills and supporting quality science journalism. But as long as people are ignorant and proud of it, and unwilling to listen > 30 seconds, we're screwed.

    I work in substance use, not climate science, but we have our own arguments about design and methods. I have no doubt that our lab's PIs would be excoriated just like the "Climategate" scientists if any of our stats meetings were overheard by the average innumerate American.
